Bumper Spolier / Side Skirts Question

I have ordered the Bumper Spolier and Side Skirts with my 1.2 Lounge. Does anyone have experience of them?

In the accessories book it says "supplied primed ready to be painted and fitted with adhesive...". Will the dealer do this? 'cos the sales lady hinted that it mite be a factory thing.

Also we missed the Rearer bumper spolier, she thought the side skirts contiuned to round the back, but it looks like they dont. Any idea on a price on these?, 'cos i'll have to add them now i've ordered the other two.

I've gone for the front splitter. Its taken four months top arrive and is a dealer fit part. It needs to be painted to suit your car.

Mine is going in at the end of the month to be fitted.

Cheers

Re: Bumper Spolier / Side Skirts Question

I've got the complete kit on my 1.3 sport (front bumper spoiler, side skirts, rear bumper spoiler) to compliment the rear spoiler on the boot lid. Makes the car look a little bit meaner

The parts aren't a factory fit so the dealer is obliged to fit them for you either in-house or via a partner bodyshop (like they did with mine). They're kidding themselves if they turn around and say they aren't responsible for the fitting - it'll be included in the price they quoted when you ordered the car so don't worry

You can get away without having the real spoiler if it'll cause a delay on your delivery time - the rear spoiler doesn't fall down in line with the side skirts, but there's detailing on the side skirts that kinda 'flows' into the rear spoiler.

Hope this helps!

Re: Bumper Spolier / Side Skirts Question

Do you think that considering i've paid for all these dealer fitted extras (well over 400, i think.) it would be only fair that the dealer throws in the mats and full tank petrol?
